Due to misuse of the poems, essays and stories on our website I feel it necessary to add our disclaimer and
copyright information here.
The poems, essays and stories which bear my name are protected under the seal of the Copyright Office in accordance with Title 17, United States Code, and attests that registration has been made for these poems and stories and this information has been made a part of the Library of Congress/United States Copyright Office in Washington DC under copyright number 094960352. As of now, absolutely no part of these poems may be used, reprinted or reproduced in any form. The fact that they are distributed via the internet does NOT release them from their creator's copyright privilege.
Thank you for taking the time to read this disclaimer. I also want to thank everyone who has signed our guestbook and sent email with kind words and encouragement.
As of November 4, 2001 I can no longer give permission
